The New York Times made a major revision to a supposed bombshell piece late Sunday concerning a resurfaced allegation of sexual assault by Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh — hours after virtually all 2020 Democratic presidential candidates had cited the original article as a reason to impeach Kavanaugh. The update included the significant detail that several friends of the alleged victim said she did not recall the purported sexual assault in question at all. The Times also stated for the first time that the alleged victim refused to be interviewed, and has made no comment about the episode.
The idea that Max Stier, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh, is a reliable, unbiased source is laughable. Yet, the media are running with his accusation without even disclosing who he is. It’s extremely relevant that he has direct ties to the Clintons and that he’s ensconced in Democratic party politics.
The review really seems the undermine the purpose of the book by pointing out that despite the extensive, year-long investigation by Pogrebin and Kelly…"In the end they turn up no smoking gun, no secret confession, no friend who comes forth to say Kavanaugh was lying all this time."
The only supposedly new claim made in the book isn’t new and comes from Democrat attorney Max Stier, a Yale classmate of Kavanaugh’s with whom he has a long and contentious history. In the words of the Yale Daily News, they were “pitted” against each other during the Whitewater investigation in the 1990s when Kavanaugh worked for Independent Counsel Ken Starr.
The Washington Post passed on a thinly sourced, unproven allegation about Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh before the New York Times published it in a misleading article in Sunday’s paper that has since been corrected. Times reporters left out exculpatory evidence in an article that claimed Kavanaugh had his pants down at a “drunken dorm party, where friends pushed his penis into the hand of a female student.”
President Trump is using the phrase “locked and loaded” to describe our current stance toward Iran, and the big news networks appear to believe that some sort of U.S. military action could be imminent. We just witnessed the worst attack on Saudi oil production facilities in history, and it would seem to be extremely unlikely that the U.S. and Saudi Arabia would allow this to pass with no response.
If you weren’t looking closely, you might not have noticed that Republicans won two North Carolina congressional races last Tuesday, not just one.
There’s a reason why there was such diverse and widespread opposition to this Obama rule: It’s a rule that could have made it very difficult for Americans to engage in even ordinary activities, such as farming or building a home. The Obama rule was so extreme it would have regulated waters that couldn’t even be seen by the naked eye.
At the CNN climate change freak show telethon earlier this month, Buttigieg…said in front of the entire world that defeating climate change will perhaps be more difficult than defeating the Nazis in World War II. This is the kind of candidate Democrats vote for, and with whom Republicans want you and me to compromise. If the election were held tomorrow, Buttigieg would receive tens of millions of votes.
Kurt Schlichter: Gun confiscation leads to violence – that’s not a hope but an observation, and an objective fact. Of course, the Democratic transcriptionists that comprise the mainstream media will try to drown out this essential critique of their plot with lies.
“What nutless wonders have you been talking to?”
2020 presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard believes that the characterization of her Democratic rivals as pro-open borders is “fair.” Last weekend, the Hawaii congresswoman discussed immigration policy during an interview with Dave Rubin on The Rubin Report.
What a load of Grade-A, politically correct fertilizer.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has managed to simultaneously be roasted and praised for his performance at the Democratic debate in Houston. While some supporters believed the 2020 presidential hopeful came out winning Thursday after spending much of the night defending himself from his rivals, many saw Biden’s sometimes incoherent moments in the Democrats’ third presidential debate simply as a disaster.
"Nobody should be in jail for a non-violent crime.” This is Joe Biden, so the first thing we have to ask is whether he even knew what he was saying.
As Biden was being asked a question by the moderator, he was moving his mouth around as if chewing gum or to adjust something, resulting in a semi-mumbled answer. The optics aren’t great for Biden, who has repeatedly faced scrutiny over his age.
Slow Joe steps in it yet again, this time with his nonsensical rambling about schools, more taxes, encouraging children to listen to record players (or phonographs, as he started to say), and a completely off topic rant about spending $740 Million so people can’t leave Latin American countries where governments are oppressing the citizens.
The Democrats’ third presidential debate was a long-winded, platitude-filled disaster where no single candidate could claim a clear victory. Instead, the seven men and three women took turns displaying why they are all probably unelectable. Start with Joe Biden’s incoherence. ..
Stephen Cruiser: They don't want you armed and able to protect yourself. They don't want you taking care of your children. They don't want you making your own decisions about your healthcare. They want you to pay more in taxes for the privilege of losing your freedoms. If one of these nimrods becomes president I'm going to wish the climate was killing us.
When candidates were asked by moderator George Stephanopoulos to describe their greatest career setbacks, Biden said professional setbacks aren’t as important as personal ones. With dignity, and somehow without seeming to play for teary sympathy in a maudlin and crass politicization of tragedy, Biden spoke of losing his wife and infant daughter in a car accident, and then of losing his grown son to cancer.
One way to measure the candidates' debate performance is to watch what the late-night comedians are saying. In a live show following the debate, Stephen Colbert, host of the CBS "Late Show," had jokes about all ten Democrats, including an imitation of Bernie Sanders' raspy voice (Medicare for all will fix it!), and a jibe at Elizabeth Warren's "folksy roots."
The Democratic civil war is just getting started….David Axelrod, the one-time political guru behind Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns and a previous critic of Biden’s performance as a candidate, mocked the video and its release as “about as subtle as a screen door on a submarine” in a tweet Thursday.
Hustlers has shallower roots than any Madonna film or music video. It’s a piece of unoriginal indoctrination, pushing the new vengeful wave of self-promotional, misandrist feminism. The strippers exploit themselves to exploit the men who exploit them is tautology that makes sense only to feminist ideologues and Hollywood panderers.
After Christine Blasey Ford publicly alleged without evidence that Brett Kavanaugh tried to rape her, her father repeatedly communicated to Kavanaugh’s father that he supported Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.
It is conservatives, not radical greens, who have the real environmental agenda, and part of that agenda concerns the human habitat, the place where we settle and which we shape as a home. It is absurd to believe that we can leave our habitat to look after itself, and still pursue a politics of rootedness and national identity.
